(WTVR) - Would you say no to the Vice President?

One business owner in Radford Virginia did when Vice President Joe Biden wanted to make a campaign stop at his shop.

Yesterday morning, advance teams for Biden walked in asking if they would like a visit from the VP himself.

The owner said he realized this was an opportunity of a lifetime, but ultimately declined the invitation based on a comment the President made about small businesses.

Biden ended up stopping at a nearby grill instead.
